democratic leader in the senate, harry reid has said that your party, both in the house and the senate is ignoring votes' top concerns. let's watch. >> the one thing that the republicans have not talked about, is a -- the one thing the american people care about more than anything else and that is jobs. and, in fact, it is the direct opposite of destroying jobs. >> chris: senator, will the g.o.p. at least in the senate, block all government business that does not include spending cuts and, secondly, what about harry reid's contention that besides the question, arguable about spending cuts the republicans are ignoring putting people back to work. >> well, if government spending would create jobs we would be in the middle of a boom because we have added $3 trillion to the national debt the last two years with the government stimulus efforts, so, cutting spending and job creation are not mutually exclusive and we believe reducing government spending is actually helpful to get the private sector going again. with regard to the procedure of going to bills, i think it is a good idea to go to

. president obama created a deficit commission. senator harry reid was kind enough -- i guess kind is a word -- was nice enough to appoint me to this commission and i spent ten months listening and then voted for the final commission product. it went into social security, and it suggested some things that are inherently controversial. for example, if you're going to give social security a longer life, what's the mix? what will you cut in benefits? how much will you increase revenue? those are the two things. i said social security is basically arithmetic. medicare is advanced calculus. social security is basically arithmetic although those basic decisions get to the heart of when you retire, how much you receive when you retire, and how much you pay in your payroll deductions each month. so the commission reached an agreement, and there were parts of it i didn't like, but it did buy 75 years of solvency for social security. it is interesting that we brought it up then as part of the deficit commission because literally social security does not add to the deficit. currently there is a surplus
